    Not sure on the wonders but Sejong has the best artwork yet I think and the scenario looks epic. Korea will have ridiculous science with settled scientists and Freedom finished if I heard right.

    Isn't that kind of overpowered? Just fill freedom and rationalism and settle all your boffins.

    Do the spices look different in the WotAW video or is it just me?

    That's why I mentioned specifically that it doesn't show the actual text in the video - I mean, it could be ridiculous or it could be yawn-time. From the wording, it's not even clear if the second part is a per-turn or one time boost.

    Yeah, I went back and checked the video because I was all like "NEW RESOURCE WHAT." I think maybe it's just because I never zoom in that far?

    Of course it is. It'll help the DLC to sell better though. ;)

    I wonder if the Korea scenario will be as bad as the Mongol one. Though, it doesnt really matter since I wont buy it.

    No Sumeria? This is just an outrage.
    How can they do this? Sumeria is one of the most great ancient civilizations in the world and they dump it like this while including **** like "the American Empire"? An outrage!
